The first ever Sino-Canadian-produced multimedia musical, it is a one-of-its-kind production that sees the application of interactive technology in film projection. The organisers describe it as “audio-visual illusion not found in common stage plays” and one that redefines the world of musical theatre. The audience can expect to be awed as they witness the visual feast provided by the changing backdrop that is the stage setting.


Ten original songs will be performed including In a World of My Own by Alice, I'm Late by White Rabbit, We're not Waxworks by Duchess, Painting the Roses Red by Knave of Hearts, and What Genus Are You by Caterpillar. The background music is by the German Radio Orchestra.
